I have known 15 year old Mathew Stein most of his life. The happy go lucky District 2 resident is a Secondary IV student at Bialik High School and during mid-term break he decided to undertake some community service hours.
No doubt encouraged by his parents Steve Stein and Arlene Ades, Mathew did no choose an easy task. "It bothers me alot how careless people are with their garbage and how they are not proud enough of their city," he said. "They throw it on the ground and walk away."
So while many of his friends were out of town on vacation, Mathew went about cleaning up our community. He was spotted around and about, including right in front of City Hall. "I chose to clean up my city, so that I could be proud to walk my dog in a clean and safe environment," he said.
